On 27th March 2018 in Ustrzyki Dolne (PL), deputy minister of investment and economic development Adam Hamryszczak signed the first grant contract within the Thematic Objective ACCESSIBILITY. The project entitled "Cross-border partnership - a chance for regional development" (SOUTHWAY) will be implemented by the Bieszczady District (PL)  and the Turka Region (UA).

The accessibility of the Bieszczady Mountains is a prerequisite for their attractiveness for investors and tourists. Thanks to the implementation of the project, on the Polish side, the following district roads will be reconstructed: Olszanica-Ropienka-Wojtkówka, Czarna-Michniowiec, Smolnik-Zatwarnica, Rakowa-Stańkowa-Ropienka, Ustjanowa-Daszówka-Czarna, Wańkowa-Dźwiniacz-Brzegi Dolne, Rozpucie-Ropienka with a total length of 15,515 km. On the Ukrainian side, 3 tourist routes and feasibility studies for around 131 km of cross-border roads will be developed. Moreover, the common strategy for stimulating the economic and tourist development of that area will be developed.

The SOUTHWAY project, which received over 1,45 M EUR of co-financing under the Programme, will last 18 months.
